My best guess is that we missed it because xemacs21 doesn't build-depend
on perl and we only tested those packages that do.

As perl is transitively build-essential via dpkg-dev -> libdpkg-perl,
packages can get away without an explicit build dependency. Also, some
packages (looks like this includes xemacs21) only need perl-base, which
is Essential:yes so no build dependency is fine.

Apologies for the inconvenience,
